Thank you all for the warm reception. I stumbled upon this site by accident and was immediately impressed by the tech (being a programmer/sysadmin/tech exec for a liviing) but am even more impressed with the immediate feedback and support.

With two small children at home it’s been very difficult to participate in-person in our local woodworking clubs (2 close by) I’m thrilled to find such a vibrant online community to participate in!

Thanks! I’ve been chronicling my work on my own blog for some time now…mainly for friends and family. I just found this site yesterday and think it’s just about the best community based site (any topic) out there—and I just had to contribute to it.

I’m glad you enjoyed—I know I’ve already gotten a tons of ideas for future pieces from many of the members here. The project gallery is just awesome and there’s a lot of very talented folks posting here.

Not sure why I didn’t noticed you lived so close to me when I first saw the pictures of the bar that you built… very cool to know there are LJs nearby! I have family in Plainfield and my wife, son and I are looking to buy/build something in the Frankfort/New Lenox area … just so you know I will be borrowing some of your design details when I build a bar in our new house .. no sense in repeating what I built in the current one!

I actually have one fluresent light over my bench, and a work light I use for the other side of the shop, as well as a small incondecent light in the middle of the basement. It is actually pretty bright when you have the work light on, but I didn’t in the video otherwise the lens gets all strange and you can see a all the specs on the camera. I wish I had one or even two more fluresents for the shop, but my dad doesn’t want a ton a pull string ones and he is to lazy to wire it. LOL. for now the work light does pretty well.

You’ve been here longer than I have, but I’m just now finding your site, thanks to HomeRefurbers. I really like the way you have a step by step progress on your web site. I don’t think I’ve seen that before. You’ve got some really nice projects posted and thanks for posting.
